The Compendium Finale of Yet Unknown Contemporary Artists

The last possible chance to create another Compendium of 2400 pages, 13,5 kilogram, handmade by master bookbinder Erwin Hendricks in Germany before his upcoming 70th anniversary next year with his well deserved retirement.

May this exciting project succeed!
